    Description

    This Adult Health Nursing Degree course prepares you for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

    All the nursing programmes share a common structure of two modules a year for the three year period. Each module requires you to work other nursing students from other fields for a significant proportion of your school-based learning. You are required by the NMC to achieve a total of 4600 learning hours divided equally between theory and practice.

    During year one you have a high level of contact time with lecturers which gradually decreases over the 3 year period as you become a more independent learner.

    The course uses a blended learning approach which involves lectures, seminars, student-led learning, simulated practice and Enquiry Based Learning (EBL). A majority of the learning will take place in small tutorial groups, exploring different real life nursing scenarios in packages of learning. For each package you will identify issues raised for an individual, gather relevant information to address the issues and agree an action plan to meet any unmet needs. A lecturer will facilitate the learning process. The school working day is Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm which consists of direct contact time in class as well as directed and self-directed study equating to 37.5 hours per week.

    Clinical placements will take place across East Anglia and involve a wide range of settings in the delivery of contemporary evidence-based healthcare. There may be occasions when you will be required to stay in accommodation away from your usual base. Placements will use a “Hub and Spoke” approach which allows you to effectively experience the client’s/patient’s journey through the health care services. Due to the nature of the healthcare environment you will experience placements which cover the 24 hour and 7 day a week cycle. Where the practice learning environment operates a shift system, you are required to work the shifts which you are allocated and will have a minimum of 40% access to your placement mentor.

    You will experience different assessment methods, which have been carefully considered to reflect the importance of being able to apply the relevant evidence base to practice. You will be expected to compile and maintain a portfolio of evidence throughout the three-year programme. With guidance and support, you will be expected to build a sound evidence base demonstrating progression, reflecting on your learning both theoretical and clinical skills. Other assessment strategies are also utilised, such as written assignments, unseen examinations, case studies, practical examinations, group presentations and a dissertation of 10,000 words in order to illustrate deeper understanding of the relationship between the theory and practice of nursing.

    Whilst in clinical placement students will complete various learning outcomes, a nursing attributes assessment as well as writing reflections based on your placement experience. You will also maintain a Skills Development Profile throughout the three year course to demonstrate your learning and competency in clinical skills.

    There will also be an opportunity to spend up to 3 weeks on an elective placement either locally, nationally or internationally at the end of the second year.

    The programme has a strict attendance policy with a maximum of 16 days permitted absence from the three year programme divided equally between theory and practice. Vacations are fixed for the whole programme with vacations scheduled for two weeks at Christmas and Easter and 3 weeks during August or September.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
